    SSD US Warranty Question

    Hello, I wonder why when buying Sabrent SSD I get 1 year warranty automatically but I can get additional 4 years with free registration. Why can't I get all 5 years from start? And are additional 4 years of warranty worth it? This also applies to home appliances.

    Anyone have experience with Inland's warranty?

I checked MC's website and they mention a 3yr warranty but no info on getting warranty service. I assume I just need to take it to MC and hopefully they'll just swap it out for a new one...

    XFX No Longer Honors Lifetime Warranties!

    Just a heads up to any of you who have an XFX GPU with a lifetime warranty. It seems XFX is refusing to honor their lifetime warranties any longer. I have a R9 280X with a registered lifetime warranty. The card had to be RMAed back in 2015, therefore validating the warranty. However, when I...

    ASUS Changes Warranty Exclusions in USA

    As you are likely aware of, the FTC recently did away with all those "warranty void if sticker removed" warnings that have been declared illegal in the US. Most companies are updating their warranty statements to fall in line with this. ASUS has gone a step further, and I am sure many of you...

    EVGA doesn't really support the hydro copper cards very well... *edit: they came through!

    My EVGA 980 Ti hydro copper started "flickering" the display when in-game a few months ago. I thought it might just be a driver issue since if I window a game, it was fine. When playing Call of Duty BO 3 or similar, the screen just flickers like a TV camera recording a LCD screen. When...

    Gigabyte Repasting and Warranty

    I bought myself a P55Wv6-PC3D because it was on sale for $1,055. Most laptops have atrocious thermal paste jobs and you can wring lower temps out of them by remedying this. However, since the machine is brand-new I'd prefer not to void the warranty, hence my question. There are stickers...
